About This Show

Nominated for 3 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play.

Tony Award winners Bill Irwin and Nathan Lane star in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, directed by Anthony Page. The starry cast also includes John Goodman and John Glover.

Waiting for Godot remains Samuel Beckett’s most magical and beautiful allegory. The story revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone – or something – named Godot. Vladimir (Bill Irwin) and Estragon (Nathan Lane) wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning.
